Meade, the county seat of Meade county, is located north of the central portion on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific R. R. It has 2 banks, 2 newspapers (the News and the Globe), all lines of mercantile enterprise, telegraph and express offices and an international money order postoffice. The population according to the census of 1910 was 664. Meade was founded in 1885. The buildings were all of native stone which existed in abundance. During the first few months the growth was very rapid on account of prospects of county organization. A bank was established and two newspapers were started. It was declared the temporary county seat on Nov. 4, 1885. A few days later the town was organized as a city of the third class and the following officers elected: Mayor, Peter E. Hart; police judge, William C. O. Osgood; councilmen, Nelson Button, Evan A. Furst, George M. Roberts, David Truax and William H. Stewart. In Jan., 1886, Meade was chosen permanent county seat. It was originally called Meade Center, but the name was changed to Meade by the act of Feb. 26, 1889.
